When I saw the above picture of Phoebe Philo (mastermind behind Céline) in Vogue last year I knew sneakers were going to become the next “thing”. Phoebe Philo radiates cool and her personal style is as studied by fashion obsessed girls as her runway shows. Originally I dismissed the whole trend because I believed that I could take no part in it. After college I started to take full advantage of the power of heels to pull-together almost any outfit and I have to admit that I became addicted to the feeling of stomping around in my Rachel Comey heeled boots.

Cut to this January when I started having extreme pain in my heels and had to start looking for more comfortable footwear. I can’t “pull off ” anything too “clunky” because it would just look foolish next to all of my feminine separates but about a week ago I finally settled on a pair of all black Nikes. I have to admit that I am kind of obsessed with them. I like how my sneakers can make an outfit look less fussy and more effortless. Below I am pictured wearing my new Nikes with some of my favorite NCJWLA finds; a Dries Van Noten top from Veteran, a leather skirt from Fairfax, a vintage leather handbag from Granville, and a Givenchy bracelet from Victory/Van Nuys.

Modern Hobble

A hobble skirt was a skirt with a narrow enough hem to significantly impede the wearer’s stride. This fashion trend from around the turn of the twentieth century is most closely associated with French designer Paul Poiret, his use of draping created a top heavy silhouette. While I don’t advocate clothing that is difficult to walk in, I am a big proponent of loose tops paired with tight bottoms.

As someone who is ok with not having a six pack, this silhouette allows me to eat what I crave while still feeling slender. The loose top carefully conceals my stomach and the skinny bottom flatters my long shape. Below I am pictured wearing a Yohji Yamamoto Noir skirt that I purchased from the NCJWLA ebay store. Can you tell Mr. Yamamoto was inspired by Monsieur Poiret? Luckily my skirt has an elastic waist-band and is stretchy enough for my to walk comfortably in.

My first Fall post! I bought this vintage Kenzo skirt a few sales ago at our Canoga Park store but due it’s weight and length it is not at all practical for Summer. Maybe I am getting a little ahead of myself and way too excited (blame it on the pumpkin spice lattes) but it is finally time to think about sweaters, tights, and dark colors!

My friend Angel helped me style this look today and lent me her Opening Ceremony bag for the occasion.
